Compiled more than two thousand years ago, the Art of War is still perhaps the most prestigious and influential book of strategy in the world today. A study of the anatomy of forces in conflict, it has been discovered by modern business people, who understand the principles it contains are as useful for understanding the interactions of modern corporations as they are for understanding the tactics of ancient Chinese armies. This illustrated edition includes two audio CDs read by Lloyd James.
